Educational experiences of trans and non-binary students in Colorado: An event featuring OneColorado student leaders

One Colorado is the state’s leading advocacy organization dedicated to advancing equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) Coloradans and their families. A+ Colorado is proud to collaborate with One Colorado and Confluence Consulting to put on a webinar that will elevate student voice and experience.

On Monday, May 17 from 4-5 pm MDT, we invite you to hear about the educational experiences of trans and non-binary students in Colorado and hear these young leader’s ideas regarding policy changes that should be made at the school, district, and state level.

This will be a student-focused event, featuring The One Colorado GSA Leadership Council.

The One Colorado GSA Leadership Council is composed of high school and college students from across Colorado. The Council facilitates the growth and development of its members as advocates for LGBTQ youth and supports the Colorado GSA Network. Members of the Council serve as regional representatives to provide feedback, training, and support for GSAs in Colorado, and to advise on programming direction within the Safe Schools work of One Colorado. Meet the GSA Leadership Council here.

We are so grateful that these young leaders are sharing their lived experiences with us, and believe that the policy recommendations presented are extremely valuable, as they come directly from students. 

Register for the panel here.
